In a gorge, in 340 BC, the ancient architect Polykleitos the Younger, built, according to Pausanias, the theater of Epidaurus. Of all the ancient theatres the theatre of Epidaurus is the most beautiful and the best preserved. Designed for entertaining patients, it has a capacity of 13,000 spectators. It is divided into two parts. The one of the 21 rows of seats for the people and the other, the lower one, of 34 rows of seats, for priests and rulers.
Its wonderful acoustics, as well as the very good condition it has been preserved, contributed to the creation of the Epidaurus Festival, an institution that has begun many years ago.
